The light-emitting diode (LED) lamp market has been forecasted to reach a consumption value of $3.36 billion in 2019—almost tripling from last year. According to ElectroniCast Consultants, the 2014 market hit $1.22 billion and will increase at an annual growth rate of 22.4 per cent through 2019.
Approved drop-out ceiling panels can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. When exposed to heat from a small fire, drop-out ceiling panels soften, distort, and fall from ceiling grid. Heat from the growing fire activates sprinklers that, unimpeded by panels that have dropped out, controls or extinguishes the fire.
Thermoformed plastic ceiling panels and tiles have unique features that make them practical for many design and construction challenges. They can be installed beneath fire sprinklers and are not affected by moisture, support indoor air quality (IAQ), and offer noise reduction.
Light-emitting diodes (LED) are becoming increasingly popular due to the ever-present emphasis on reducing project costs. With numbers of LED installations rising, it is imperative that architects, engineers, and specifiers are able to evaluate the benefits of LED technology.
